Staff was helpful and friendly. Location was wonderful as you can smell the ocean and just a couple of blocks away from the marina. Room was old, air condition was noisy, the window screen was broken.

I booked the Marina Inn because it was close to the airport and I was flying in to Seattle very late at night. Turns out that I missed my connection due to bad weather so I called the hotel as soon as I knew I would not be making it to Seattle that night to give them an opportunity to... More

Returning after a few years we found some remodeling had taken place so our stay was some better. Unfortunately some of the remodel was still going on at 10 PM - an inconvenience at best to guests who might have an early flight. How can they think using loud tools late at night is a good idea? Front desk also... More

Affordable for summertime rental anywhere near Seattle and an easy drive into Seattle and to the airport from hotel. There are several restaurants (Anthony's & Wally's Chowder House, Thai, Mexican & Italian) within walking distance as well as the waterfront. Very basic rooms - but comes with refrigerator. Did not hear airplane noise and beds were clean and comfortable. Breakfast... More

We were looking for something close to the airport for one night. We were happy with the rate but the room and breakfast were a disappointment. The rooms are very outdated and the breakfast was not worth going to since there was very little of anything offered. On the positive note, the area around the inn is beautiful. You are... More

It is a family hotel , near the Seattle airport. It is basic but clean. The marina and a park are nearby, as well as several restaurants. A little outdated but after the room was inexpensive. Breakfast was not bad but nothing to write home about.

I had relatives flying out of SeaTac and used the Marina Inn as a base camp to explore Seattle for a couple days before they left. We stayed two nights but didn't spend much time in the room. We left the room early the first day and returned late after sightseeing in downtown Seattle. The room had not been cleaned... More

Our room was big, clean and quiet. It didn't smell of cigarette smoke. The wifi was strong. The man at the front desk was helpful. We spent a little bit more (~$10/night) for this hotel rather than any of the hotels near the airport, but it was money well spent. The drive was in the opposite way of downtown Seattle,... More

MarinaInn, Front Office Manager at Marina Inn, responded to this review

When a guest has a complaint or a bad review, and they wait 6 months to post it, it is very hard and not fair to the hotel. No one here remembers this instance, or the guests, so we have no way of responding to the complaint. If they had complained after there stay, we would have remembered them ,(perhaps... More
